Attorney Schuster’s path towards the top of the New York Criminal

prelaw student at John Hopkins University, where he graduated with the
highest academic honor the University bestows. He then obtained his Juris
Doctorate from Georgetown University Law Center at which time he also
interned at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington DC. After his
immediate admission to the New York bar in 1995, he served as an Assistant
District Attorney where he was placed in charge of more than eight municipal
and local courts. He was also responsible for appeals on numerous murder
cases, presenting cases to grand jury and for trying dozens of criminal
and quasi-criminal cases to verdict. This breadth and intensity of experience
earned him advanced prosecutorial insight that he leveraged and developed
into powerful, in-depth defense strategies for thousands of clients in
the years to come. After entering private practice in 1997 and founding
his criminal defense law firm in 1998, Attorney Schuster has been honing
his skills and experience, handling thousands of cases to their successful

by ABC News, NBC News, People Magazine, the Herald Tribune, New York Newsday,
Fox News, The Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, and dozens of other
